New License Plate

I just drilled and countersunk it where the holes needed to be to switch it to vertical. They aren't pre-marked like some of the older ones, but with a little common sense, it's pretty easy.
Then you have a different mount and backing plate than what came on my K9. Mine is all one molded together setup. No seperate mount.

Question, if its all one, how would you get to the light?
The tag light unbolts from the backing plate. I'm referring to the backing plate and mount are all one piece which is why it can't be mounted vertically. I'm guessing some 2009s had the two piece design and maybe the later production ones...like mine...came with the one piece designs.

Cool didn't know we could flip them here legally. I flipped mine in 07, it says Bad Dog. No hassles so far. I might have picked something different if I knew we could have gone with 4 and flip it.

Looks like PA has pass a law in Nov. making you pay an extra $20 a year to run a vertical plate. That's $20 on top of the $18 per year for registration. I will just wait and see if I get stopped.

Jim, I have been running mine like this for about 6 yrs and never had any problems and I was stopped once and nothing was even said about it. I even live 6 houses from Pa SP.

I hope to get away with it for awhile. It just became law in November I bet they will be looking for them this summer.

Another idea

I know you K9 owners can not do this because of the tight tire to fender clearances but this is my reworked rear fender.

I just flipped one. I had to drill new holes in the backer plate. The one I did was already marked where it needed to be drilled.
I have the same tag mount as yours & it also had 4 pilot marks. It was easier to place the LED side towards the frame, & just slightly mill for minor wire re-rout without lengthening wires too.20190325_003603.jpg
 
This is very cool.

Lil Boo - I know this was a really old thread, but Texas no longer appears to offer more than 5 characters on custom MC plates. What did you do ?

Is it possible to find plate carriers somewhere nowadays? if it can be a folding one even better!!! for a K9.
